Gotta keep your eyes peeled for people who are not watching for bikes.

people seem to like to avoid puddles by drifting into the other lane. Had someone try and dart through traffic to make a turn before realizing I was there. Lucky they stopped and I pointed at her as I rode by. No not the finger... just a "watch where your going" kinda point.

Saw a lot of bikes out over the weekend though... A friend of my room mate picked up a R6 the other day so we riders may have another buddy to cruise with.

Changed the oil and cleaned/lubed the chain last night.

Looks like my first stop will be for air in the tires, and for the shop to tighten my chain.

Is your chain not adjustable to do yourself?

I know its a different bike but the chain adjustment on my 2000 YZF600 was very easy to do. You could probably find instructions online. Shouldn't be harder to do then your oil change.

CBR600RR most likely 04-05 for a 5k budget.


GSXRs I don't recommend if you're a guy, very uncomfortable bike to sit in... rides up your crotch.

Got nothing against either cruiser or sport but go for the sport bike. I'm enjoying mine more then the cruiser.

However take the class and ride the cruisers, sports and duel purpose bikes they will have there and then decide. Don't make the mistake I did which was buy a bike and then take the course. I ended up with a cruiser and now ride sport bikes.

I'm a believer in Yamaha and there are some good ones on CL. However an R6 is a bike your going to be leaned over a lot to ride. Go to the dealers and sit on a few different kinds to see what you think you may like best. 5k on a R6 only to decide you don't like riding so leaned forward... waste of money.

I still want an R6 though. But really loving my FZ8.

I don't have the proper sized wrenches. Need two for proper use. I have a friend who works at the shop, I'll see if I can talk him into doing it quick.

Fairly big news in the motorcycle world. Ducati was purchased by the VW/Audi group.
They also own Lamborghini, Bentley, Skoda and SEAT. Supposedly Porsche owns a controlling interest in VW.
